Things I’ve built trying to put my dent in the universe.
I’ve worked on tons of little projects over the years but these are the ones that I had a large hand in the development.
Created technology to empower SMBs to build their own e-commerce stores (now Square/Block e-commerce). Implemented a new product catalog system, inveentory system, checkout system, etc.
Weebly Platform allowed third parties to integrate with Weebly to build their own apps. I built the core infrastructure for the platform, including the API, the developer portal, and the app store.
Pulling public information together about funding in the startup and venture capital ecosystem. Work in progress.
Helping users take control of their own data and privacy. Connected with password managers, Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Pulled and parsed GDPR data. No longer available.
The story of Firefox and Firebug are synonymous with the rise of the web. We fought the good fight and changed how developers inspect HTML and debug JS in the browser. Firebug ushered the Web 2.0 era. No longer available as integrated into most browsers.
Illuminations for Developers was an extension to Firebug (and later Chrome) that brought in JS Frameworks into the debugger. Worked with ExtJS, EmberJS, and BackboneJS. Later replicated by most frameworks themselves. No longer available.
